As the Global Ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, they often host a Drake Night for the Toronto native.  The rapper comes through, and they give out pretty cool Drake/Raptors apparel for the fans.  This was the first Drake Night of the season and it was during their game against the Golden State Warriors.

It turns out, Meek Mill is NOT banned from the Toronto Raptors locker room.  As everyone knows, Drake is the Global Ambassador for the Raptors and a big supporter of the team.  Drake also famously had a huge beef with Meek, which has since settled down a bit since Meek, The Game, and Beanie Sigel are currently going at it.  In any event, Raptor Patrick Patterson was asked if there’s a Meek ban and he says no.

(Video) NBA: For Wade & Bosh It Kinda Pays To NOT Be In The Playoffs

(Photos) NBA: Drake Tells Haters to Leave Comments in Caps & They Go IN After Cavs Destroy Raptors

It appeared the Toronto Raptors were finally making the eastern conference finals a real series after winning two straight and evening the series at 2-2.  It didn’t continue however as the Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed the Raptors in Game 5,  leading by more than 40 points before winning 116-78.  In fact the Cavs big three of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love scored 71 points, just seven less than the whole Raptors team combined.  Drake knew fans were going to go in on him after all his posturing and posts following Game 4, so he welcomed them to his Instagram, telling them to leave their hate comments in CAPS.  They obliged… LOL

It really does take that home court advantage to kick a team into full gear. Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers had that advantage and took the Toronto Raptors to school!

Back in January, DeMar DeRozan claimed he was a Raptor fa life! Now, according to his bestie, Romeo Miller, that might change.


(Video) NBA: Is Dikembe Wagging A Finger A Biyombo?

Dikembe Mutombo made his “no no no” finger wag famous when he played in the NBA not so many years ago. Now, his Congolese brother on the come up, Bismack Biyombo of recent Toronto Raptor fame, has been borrowing the move, stating that Mutombo allowed him the privilege. Apparently, not so much. TMZ found Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo (mmhmmm) at the airport of course and asked about that permission. Mutombo has no idea….tsk tsk Bismack. Guess you’ll have some ‘splainin’ to do this summer in the Congo. @DinaWitaY


(Photos) NBA: Drake Trolls Kyrie Irving & the Cavaliers as Raptors Even the ECF 2-2

The Cleveland Cavaliers cut down an 18-point deficit and even momentarily took the lead but the Toronto Raptors weren’t having it as the two battled in the fourth quarter.  Kyle Lowry put up 35 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists while DeMar DeRozan put up 32 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists.  Bismack Biyombo has become the star of the series however.  In game 3 he put up a whopping 26 rebounds; for game 4 he posted 14 rebounds and battled hard on the defensive end, doing all the things that don’t show up on the stat sheet.  Raptors global ambassador Drake resumed his usual courtside seat and continued to cheer his team on while trying to rattle the Cavs.  After the game, he posted a series of photos on his Instagram account, championing his team while trolling the Cavaliers.  He specifically dissed Kyrie Irving saying “2 (Irving’s number) gave us 2 (two wins).”  Irving put up 13 points in game 3 and 26 points in game 4.
